She has said: "It was from that performance that I knew I wanted to be an actress, it propelled me to take drama lessons and now Im returning to that stage. Its a strange but lovely feeling".

During the summer of 2010, Bould joined the companies of Sheridan's The Critic and Tom Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound at Chichester Festival Theatre, playing to full houses and rave reviews.

She married Robin Savage in Shropshire in September 2010.
Bould starred as "Tracy Lord" in a UK tour of High Society in early 2013.
2. The decline and extinction of the Affleck baronetcy of lily & sapphire
The seventh baronet lost money through fraudulent dealings by a firm of solicitors and sold Dalham Hall and its estate in 1901 to Cecil Rhodes to raise 100,000.
The 8th baronet, Frederick Danby James Affleck, was born with no expectation of inheriting the title and immigrated to Queensland, Australia as a cadet with the P&O shipping line. He unexpectedly inherited the title after the death of his cousin, the seventh baronet, in 1919. Frederick Affleck was involved in numerous business ventures in Queensland but lost all his money.
He died, poor and blind, on 24 July 1939 at the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum on North Stradroke Island in Queensland, Australia and was buried in Toowong Cemetery in Brisbane. Frederick Affleck's eldest son, Frederick James Siddartha Affleck (born 1905 in Wynnum, Brisbane), was a habitual criminal and at the time of his father's death in 1939 was in Boggo Road Gaol in Brisbane along with his younger brother Dalham Robert Affleck serving a four-year sentence for robbery and blackmail. Although Frederick senior and Frederick junior wanted Frederick junior to inherit the title from his father, Frederick junior and his siblings were illegitimate as Frederick senior had not been legally married to their mother at the time of their births.
Although Frederick senior claimed to have married Elizabeth Annie (Lily) Ross in 1904, at that time she was married to (but separated from) her first husband Lionel Laurence Green. Frederick senior and Lily did not marry until 1918 after Lily believed Green to have died. However, Green had not died, so this was not a legal marriage.
Shortly before his death, on 21 June 1939, with Green definitely dead, Frederick senior and Lilly married again and then re-registered the births of their children which, under Queensland law, made their children legitimate as their parents were now legally married. After Frederick senior's death, Lily applied on behalf of her imprisoned son for him to inherit the title. However, after many enquiries, on 22 June 1949, the Attorney-General declared that English law did not recognise Queensland's subsequent legitimacy of the birth as being sufficient to inherit the title.
As there were no other living heirs, the title became extinct.

Life of lily & sapphire
Loat was born in Battersea in about 1880 and her father was John Loat. She was head pupil at Tiffin Girl's School in Kingston-on-Thames. She took shorthand lessons and this skill gained her a position at the National Anti-Vaccination League which had been founded in 1896.
Loat had no strong views on vaccination. She was working for the league's secretary answering correspondence and during this time she became a strong supporter of the league. When the secretary resigned she was soon confirmed as the replacement secretary at the beginning of 1909.
The league became her life and she knew a lot about the subject of vaccination and the possible hazards associated. She was invited to speak internationally in the 1920s and the 1930s and she would answer correspondence on the subject. She enjoyed debating with critics.
The Leagues journal The Vaccination Inquirer and Health Review had been published since 1880. Lote took on the editorship of the journal in 1932. In 1951 she published The Truth about Vaccination and Immunization.
This was a small book that itemised the arguments against vaccination. It is still re-issued. Loat was also opposed to vivisection.
Loat wanted to retire but no replacement could be found. This was a disappointment to her. Loat died in Kingswood in Surrey in 1958.
She was working for the National Anti-Vaccination League whilst in hospital during her final illness. She was still the editor of the league's journal- the journal's final issue was in 1972.
